11 Years Ago: Right Place – Right Time

A friend reminded me of this from our visit with him on Martha’s Vineyard, back in 2007.

We got up early to catch the sunrise over the water and saw this amazing effect. The sun was still below the horizon but was beginning to light up the horizon but something was in line with the sun and threw this shadow into the sky. We speculated as to the cause of it, thinking that maybe the moon was in position. A check of the ephemeris was inconclusive, but suggested the possibility. The other option would be a cloud.

Whatever the reason, it was fascinating and it lasted for less than 10 minutes.

Right place – right time.
